Veggies Vs. Meats

Is it reasonable to stay like we are and do what we do?

Don’t answer that, but perhaps it is time to look at what we are doing with food.

There is a great debate which involves many big problems on planet earth: climate change, to eat or not eat meat (our health and welfare may depend on it), and changes are being spurred on by new concerns and interest due to Covid-19.

The exact place to start in this quagmire of change may be to start reading about the great debate.

Please support the effort and read the link below about meat and veggies.

Do Your BEST And Do No HARM: Violence

Put a name and face to violence and practice doing your best and do no harm.

You need to be a student and practice each day to do your best to identify your violence and do no harm.

You need to practice each day, weather you find your violence or not.

Violence will not leave forever, it helps to prepare for the return of violence by identifying it and doing your best to do no harm.

Mastering Impressions

Remember that first impression, it’s hard to do.

It’s effortless, but not instant.

Why? Because it is a kind of ‘love’.

The philosophy behind any great impression is always hard won.

It’s never a matter of luck.

It’s new, it’s part of you.

You just made it, but it took your whole life (up to that point) to do.

To Write: I will do my best and do no harm

The idea is to think about love and therefore wisdom.

It may sound precocious and selfish, nihilistic and deceitful.

Or it may have a poetic sound like a message from someone with a philosophical bent.

The virtue is nothing less than true happiness.

Define love, to be compassionate through working on being compassionate in emotionally challenging situations.

An aloof man with no willingness to cooperate with others.

He looses much but he is willing to take from those that give with a good happy manner.

He is far from hopeless but challenges anyone’s patience on every occasion.

To unpack this experience is to live through pain, suffering and may lead to a happier way of being, at least in a temporary way.

More, live with a good life in mind.

Be mindful of living a good life.

Bring that to your every life experience.

Not to be a saint, but to feel compassion and happy: I will do my best and do no harm.

A Taoist or Stoic Approach To Fear

Philosophy, applied with good practice can heal all wounds.

Perhaps, it is safer to say that Taoism and Stoicism have much in common and both approach the practice of overcoming or ‘dancing with fear’ (by Paul Foxman) in much the same manner.

To build a practice which will benifit the practitioner is best.

The Taoist uses central or core principles like ‘compassion, simplicity and patience’.

Specifically, it is best to follow what science can prove is best.

The lizard brain is practicing fight and flight all the time in a black and white way.

We can over ride this part of our brain as we become conscious of our fear and identify it specifically for our situation.

The frontal cortex allows us to make decisions in a much greyer or rational way.

We can also exercise our motivation to excite and engage our opportunities that are sometimes identified for us by our lizard brains or feelings of fear.

Most of us can identify with situations like procrastination, inability to commit, or a number of other common humanly problems that tend to create a fight or flight response.

Stoics are more akin to cognitive therapy which helps us build practices from which we are apt to build even bigger learning opportunities.

Philosophers like myself identify concepts like these and create an experiment of one to find skills that also mimic applied psychology or philosophy.

I suggest books like Dancing with Fear: Overcoming Anxiety in a World of Stress and Uncertainty by Paul Foxman and Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, Tao Te Ching by Lao Tzu and Discourses and Selected Writings by Epictetus.

Sometimes, mistakes happen for a reason.

Sleep, exercise and eat…

Do these three things well.

Stop drinking coffee at noon.

Get to bed on time. That means sleeping at a set sleep time seven days a week.

Make the room dark.

Breath from your nose.

Mind follows body, to treat them both right, look after them both.

Do look after your state of mind, use mindful meditation on the regular basis, each day for the same time, seven days a week.

Move more, walk more, stand more, Keep moving to maintain a good energy level.

Eat well, lots of fiber, good microbes, do not smoke or drink, and keep recreational drugs out of the body. Stay off sugar, and alcohol and do not overuse anything.

It takes time to change, be determined to live a good life and do no harm.
